Meet The Richardsons delves into the funny and frustrated lives of married comedians Jon Richardson and Lucy Beaumont who, playing exaggerated versions of themselves, give viewers a glimpse into their home and work lives, surrounded by their celebrity friends and their neighbours.


Following a successful series three and four of their at home mockumentary, which saw a best performance BAFTA nomination for Lucy, UKTV have today released first look images and the celebrity guest stars joining the comedic duo for series five.


Joining The Richardsons are Adrian Chiles, Alexander Armstrong, Amanda Abbington, Ben Shephard, Carlton Palmer, Carrie & David Grant, Charlie Cooper, Cheryl Baker, Dick & Dom, Gregg Wallace, Julian Clary, Kemah Bob, Kimberly Wyatt, Lee Mack, Matt Forde, Max Rogers, Nigel Havers, Roland Gift, Stephen Mangan, Steve Pemberton, The Cheeky Girls, Tim Lovejoy and Toyah.


In this series, Lucy’s career is turbo-charged by her BAFTA nomination and she’s getting offered shows from the very big to the frankly bizarre. Jon is fine with Lucy’s success, he’s not competitive at all, and he knows when he’s beaten.

So, while Lucy’s busy on Taskmaster, Bake Off and Celebrity Chinese Whispers, Jon is plotting his escape from telly, with one last, lucrative job hosting a new daytime Quiz show. Meanwhile, at home, a global superstar and her partner move in next door, making it harder than ever to keep up with the neighbours.

Lucy’s turning 40 and she’d really like Jon to go with her to Glastonbury to celebrate. He’ll never agree to that. But will they both agree that five series of Meet The Richardsons is more than enough?


Catch up on all previous series of Meet the Richardsons on UKTV Play now. Series five will air on Dave this Spring.
